    Imagine if Sachin was paid to pull out of his 17th delivery facing acting as a fly in his eye. Now how would that scenario compare with doping and match fixing?

    Another way of looking at it is that the bowler loses the chance of taking a wicket with that ball, but gains an exactly equal chance of getting a wicket with the 7th ball of his over which he wouldn't otherwise have bowled.
    What if instead of concentrating on bowling a foot over the crease, Amir took a wicket?

    Quite right. But in that sense, the two things (the wasted no-ball and the additional 7th ball) simply cancel each other out.
